More Watercolouring - Willow With Lantern

Yep, it's another watercoloured card.  I'm spending a lot of time trying to stop thinking!!  :-)  I'm loving colouring with Stampin' Up! inks at the moment... unfortunately I've been favouring the colours that are about to retire!  It's so unfair that I'm only now discovering my intense love for Sage Shadow...

This is a stamp called Willow with Lantern by Whiff of Joy.  Isn't it beautiful?  It's not a brilliant example of watercolouring though...

And I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to get the light from her lantern looking right... did I succeed?

As always, I'd love to know what you think!
